Josey “blessed” to receive an offer from the Florida Gators

The Florida Gators have been out on the road the last two weeks visiting schools during the spring evaluation period and during that time, they’ve been offering several prospects.

2021 offensive lineman Noah Josey (6-5, 280, Brentwood, TN. Brentwood Academy) was one of those guys offered by Florida last week.

“It was Coach [Larry] Scott that offered me,” Josey said of which coach from Florida offered him. “He said that they liked the way I moved and my aggressiveness and he wants me to come down to Gainesville and check everything out, which I would love to do.”

Josey now has 16 offers but he was caught off guard to receive the offer from the Gators last week.

“I was very surprised to get it,” he said on his reaction to the offer. “I’m blessed to receive the offer. Florida is an amazing academic school, which is very important to me.”

The 2021 offensive lineman plays multiple positions on the offensive line in high school but Scott says the Gators will get into where he would play at in Gainesville later in the process.

“He did not say much about that,” Josey said on if Scott talked to him about where he would play. “He said that me being so early in this process it’s difficult to forecast that far ahead but he said that we would talk about that later.”

Josey hasn’t visited Gainesville yet but the offensive lineman does know several things about the Gators program.

“I really love the academics,” he said on what he likes about Florida. “That’s a integral part to where I will choose. It’s hard to say much right now with it being so early in the process.”

Florida isn’t the only school hard after Josey right now as several other SEC schools are after the lineman.

“Alabama is, so is Georgia, Kentucky and Vanderbilt,” Josey said on schools recruiting him hard. “I have talked to a lot of schools and I’m planning to visit them soon. I do plan to visit Florida at some point but I have no idea when but I would love to visit them.”
